Call of Duty: Online throws robot zombies into the mix

Call of Duty: Online -- the Chinese-exclusive, free-to-play, online only title -- has a new trailer. The fact that it exists isn't necessarily significant; the fact that it contains menacing robot zombies is most certainly significant...   read

Mecanika wants to teach Newtonian mechanics with robots

As somebody who has had ideas for using games as tools for education, things like Mecanika are particularly interesting to me. Though physics has become more prominent in games as time has passed, developer CREO wants to utilize realistic ...   read

Review: SteamWorld Dig

On paper, SteamWorld Dig sounds like the most mind-numbing slog that you could possibly imagine. The object of the game is to dig, exchange the minerals you unearth for better equipment, then dig some more. And when you think you've dug dee...   read

The world has been shut down in Mega Man #31

I've been so busy diving into Sonic and Mega Man's "Worlds Collide" comic mini-series that I've neglected to talk about Mega's post-crossover story arc. How do you raise the stakes after a dimension-bending war against both Drs. Wily and Eg...   read

People actually like the Maverick Hunter reboot concept
